Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance of Oklahoma (DBSA-OK) is a state branch of the national organization. DBSA-OK began in 1991 with their first support group in Oklahoma City, and now offers free, peer-led support groups located around the state of Oklahoma. We provide training and educational classes for those who are looking to facilitate support groups or further their recovery journey.
DBSA-OK also holds regular facilitator summits to provide support and further education of our facilitators. We provide a wide variety of information on different aspects of mental health disorders, and we reach out to the public by attending different state conferences and events.
DBSA-OK holds two annual events for our consumers, volunteers, and family members: the DBSA annual picnic and silent auction in late summer, and A Night To Remember fundraising dinner, which is held each October. We also work closely with other consumer advocates around the state.
